My Bubble: No Normalcy At All!

Things have not been normal, not at all ... not since my dream 'RETIREMENT' in February. I believe I did managed to put in 2 weeks of pure enjoyment just before the Chinese New Year. I was also about to complement a couple of friends' business using my free time before unplanned incidents led one thing to other.

It started with the joyous occasion of selling my home. An excitement rather, until Nick got himself stucked without his own transport when he trashed his car. Luckily he wasn't hurt. The 3 of us were left to juggle between 2 cars and then only 1 when hubby sold his car. We waited like a month for his new car to be delivered and 6 weeks for Nick's car to be repaired. This threw us into quite a fair bit of inconveniences. Then the surprise addition to our family, Bowie. It kinda took alittle getting use to a dog in the home again in the first 2-3 weeks. Oh yes, let's not forget the draggy and frustrating search for a temporary home to rent.

Ahhh ... I thought my quest for normalcy was soon beginning to pick up again when Nick trashed his car a second time last Saturday, just a few hours before we were having a small do at home to celebrate his birthday. Now, we're back to 2 cars again ... until when? I've no idea!

I don't forsee any normalcy to my daily routine, not at all until end of June ... at least until we've fully settled into our rented abode and when Nick's car's fully repaired. Right this moment, I still kinda cracking my mind how to pack and move my home ... hhhelpppppp!!!

Where's the calm, peaceful life of an early retiree? So far it's not according to my perspective ... it seems rather elusive!


A happy thought is like a seed that sows positivity for all to reap.

3 Bubbles:

Hang in there...it will come besides...you wouldn't want it to be too mundane and routine...believe me.

Normalcy may never arrive. On the bright side, it won't be boring!

Hahaha!!! You're so right actually. Normalcy is just my old-obsessive-compulsive-orderly kind of person ... still haven't shake-off the habit yet.
